  • Metals and Ceramics

    Art Adventures YA! (Young Adult) Day Camp hosts students in grades 6-8 to OCAC’s professional arts studios under the guidance of working artists and arts educators. The Spring Break Camp session is comprised of two in-depth art workshops. This intensive exploration of two different studio techniques provides the developing teen boundless opportunity for self-expression and personal exploration. The needs of middle school students are unique and we thrive on finding a creative balance with this age group. The YA! Day Camp is an ideal starting point for any youth interested in pursuing art at a more complex and rigorous level or just interested in exploring a creative idea.

    At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 4:00pm for our Friday Art Walk. This is a chance to share their artwork with families, friends, camp staff and other artists. The art show gives campers a chance to celebrate the week’s accomplishments and to see their work through the eyes of others.

Before/After Care is offered as a package for an additional fee of $30 per session. No person under the age of 15 years may wait unsupervised on the campus of Oregon College of Art and Craft.

    YA! Metals & Ceramics
    Our metals workshop is a wonderful and rare chance for middle school students to explore an ancient medium and the techniques to create small-scale projects such as jewelry, sculpture, functional items and decorative metal pieces. Each Metals Instructor focuses on different techniques to produce wonderful projects. Examples of projects might include wire sculpture and explore how to use line three-dimensionally, cutting flat sheets to create forms that move, surface design and stamping to create literary metal pieces or wearable art, and small scale forming and bending of metal to create jewelry. Every metals class is unique, and offers different skills for campers to explore in the wide field of metals.

    Ceramics is a very hands-on workshop! We have two different processes that campers focus on in the ceramics class. The first process is learning to work on the wheel in the ceramics studio. Students learn to center the clay and form and build throughout the week. This means campers come away with thrown objects that can be used functionally, or as art pieces. The second process is hand building. Campers make sculptural objects when hand-building- exploring the limitless possibilities of forming clay. All projects are fired and either glazed or painted, so they come away with wonderfully finished pieces.

  • The sketchbook is one of the most vital tools for any artist. It serves as a journal, a place to work out visual problems, a place to experiment techniques, and practice your skills. This course will serve as a pathway to developing one’s visual voice and good creative habits. Throughout the week students will be working on dozens of smaller writing and drawing projects that will spur idea generation, strengthen drawing & observation skills, and allow experimentation. The goal will be trying to fill a whole sketchbook over the course of the week!
